    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Changing Diet

    I have tried several changes to my diet over the years, and was surprised at how much better I felt when I went on a low salt diet. I kept my salt intake down to 500 to 700mg a day and I felt so much better that I was able to stop my iburprofen for days. I have heard others talk about reducing sugar and carbs, and they help increase my energy when I do reduce sugar, but it also increased my pain and stiffness. Keep track of what your eating and see if you can find food triggers. What may work for one person may not work for another.
